Body: 

BRAINERD, Minn.—Wild rice is as synonymous with Minnesota cuisine as lakes are to the state's reputation. Wild rice has been used as a food source for centuries, and it's grown in more than half of Minnesota's counties. Clearly, it's a big deal.

In this week's Northland Outdoors TV episode, we visit a central Minnesota family which has made a living on harvesting wild rice for four generations.

The crew also travels to Wisconsin for a very special pheasant hunt.

See it all in this weekend's episode of "Northland Outdoors TV."
